We are moving to a dedicated server. The site should be faster and I will be able to add better features... such as spell check.

The problem... we will be down for about 24hrs... so when do I make the move??

Eric Thats great news about the server and the spell checker it will help spellaphobes like myself no end, best time for the move would a period of low activity say mid week.

What type of server is it I came across this one recently is it symilar  :lol:







Sorry Eric couldn't resist the leg pull

Have fun

Have at it any time that's convenient for you. But I guess the rest are right mid-week looks good.  :thumbup:

I don't know if I'll be able to take a 24 hour down time. I'll be ready for the rubber room. :lol:

Anytime is good. Might even venture outdoors, might even mow the yard, might even spend time with the "Bride" wait, now that's a scary thought

As we're a pretty international bunch and it is for a 24 hr period, go for it, no time is better than any other except for midweek as has been said. Talk to you all later......

I should have opted for the weekend change over. I would have been gone for 2 days.  The rubber room realy got a beating.  :lol:


Glad we're all back and up and running.  :clap:

So..... Not knowing much,

What's the difference?  (no not the difference engine Stew!)

Does it speed up, slow down or cause random cartwheels to appear on screen? ...... I just don't get it all this computing!



Still as long as everyone else is happy then I am too  :)




Glad to be able to be back!?  :thumbup:
